Celebrating Everyday Leadership

World Quality Day 2017

Quality professionals at all levels display leadership behaviours – from advocating why quality is important to using fact-based thinking to help businesses balance conflicting objectives and targets.

This year, we are celebrating everyday leaders who exhibit the values of the quality profession – a clarity of purpose, a focus on stakeholders, a commitment to do things properly and to objectively evaluate outcomes, along with a passion for continuous improvement.

World Quality Day (#WQD17) is your opportunity to celebrate the achievements of your team and organisation, and recognise those that demonstrate leadership to sustain and improve performance every day of the year.

How will you celebrate World Quality Day 2017?

World Quality Day toolkit

This World Quality Day toolkit will help you to highlight the value of the quality profession – it contains marketing, reading and activity materials to help you engage your stakeholders.

What is World Quality Day?

Many individuals and organisations use World Quality Day as an opportunity to act as quality advocates. In 2016, over a thousand organisations across the globe hosted activities around the theme of ‘making operational governance count’.

Help us make 2017 a success. By honouring the quality profession on 9 November 2017, you help to raise the profile of the brilliant work you do all year round, and highlight the positive impact of quality on organisations.

World Quality Day is celebrated annually on the second Thursday in November
